Back in the Saddle, Again...

I have been in a bit of a slum for the past few weeks or so. My sleep schedule had gone so completely out of whack that I had to correct it. Anyone who has gone from being a night owl to a day owl (pretty sure that doesn't exist) will understand my troubles.

Once I got my sleep schedule more manageable, we had a death in the family. My Mamaw (grandmother for those who aren't used to the term) died at the age of 74. She was the last of my living grandparents, making her passing even more devastating and I was unable to attend the memorial. She was an avid reader and lover/writer of poetry, which is something that we bonded over. Her sweet laugh will be missed...

On a lighter note, Aurora has been officially released!

Also, the cover for Dynasty (Book Five of the Everealm Series) is finished!

Progress (Everealm):

I am on chapter five of Dynasty, the final book of the Everealm Series! It was a slow start due to my slum (see above for explanation). But now that I have found my "groove" I have written 2 1/2 chapters in three days. I may get back to my chapter-a-day schedule if I'm lucky.

Also, I am working on answering questions for an author interview with one of my favorite bloggers! Look for that, coming soon! :)

Progress (Songs):

Still working on the outline for this series but I have over 19,000 words written in my "snippets" document for upcoming books. If you aren't aware, I tend to write certain scenes as they come to me or when I'm in the mood for them. I keep them in a snippets document and pull them when I'm ready. I am having second thoughts on my original cover designs for this series so I will continue to work on those, as well.

P.S. Feedback on Aurora is slowly trickling in and it's positive so far! Phew!

Quick Update!!

Everealm Series:

I've been pretty quiet for the past week. Sorry about that! When I'm editing, I am either reading the manuscript or listening to it (text-to-speech), so it requires a lot of attention.

The final edit for Aurora is finished! Woohoo!

I am waiting on my proofreader to get through the teaser chapter for Dynasty (Book Five) and then I will be sending the book to my list of reviewers as well as uploading it to Amazon. No wait this time. I would rather get right into working on the last book than wait around for release dates.

I am working on the cover for the fifth book, right now. I will share it once it's ready. Hopefully, by the end of the day. It's snowing outside and we have a long weekend ahead of us so I hope to get a lot of book work done!

Songs Series:

Still working on the outline for the series. I have changed my mind a few times on the details of the plot but I hope to have a plot summary ready for you, soon! I will also be working on the book covers as I go. I will be adding the first book of the series to Goodreads once I have a plot summary ready so everyone can add it to your TBR lists. So excited about spending more time in Everealm!
